Common taboos in Vietnam Avoid hugging, holding hands and especially kissing in public. Even touching a member of the opposite sex is despised. Avoid shorts that are too short and revealing shirts. Our philosophy at Shanti Travel when visiting any destination is to visit the country by adapting to its habits and customs.
Vietnam, a country that has been heavily influenced by Chinese culture, has many cultural differences that you should consider when traveling to Vietnam. With 1,600 km from top to bottom, home to more than 50 ethnic groups and bordered by the contrasting countries of China, Cambodia and Laos, Vietnam is perhaps the most diverse tourist destination in Southeast Asia.
